In Japan, Tatami existed more than 1000 years within our daily lives.
However, at first, it was only for people of higher rank.
It was mainly for nobles and Samurai.
Especially, in the highly ranked Samurai’s residence, not only room and hallways but also restroom and bathroom were gorgeously Tatami floored.
Tatami used to be the luxury and the index to showing higher rank.
